First is Better

by Rinken57 on Sep 24, 2007

Having just read her first book Nickled and Dimed I was dissa ppointed in this one. It is a harder read and sometimes boring. But if you want to see white collar "struggle" you will be disappointed. The money she wasted on training would be living money for the poor. It did give me insite to how conformist white color must be and how narrow minded they are in what one must wear and how to think to be pretensious. I once wanted to be white collar but am glad to never entered that realm. These are the new forms of bigotry. Thinking how important clothing, presentation of ones self and image are fooling others. These ideas are always the same results, ie, I am better than others. Poor in many other ways than money they are.
